Yeah, not as intense as you though.

I don't feel like I own it until I pull it too pieces and put it back together.

Haven't posted anything for a while since work and life has been a bit full on, but have had a chance to do a bit lately. I recently bought tyres and finally but the girl back on planet earth. Very happy with the fit. Federal Super Steel 245 x 45 x 17 up front and 275 x 40 x 17 on the rear. Same as stock rolling diameter and everything fits without the engine in yet.

Bought a proper flaring tool online and did all the brake lines. Using a one inch master cylinder with booster. Contemplated hydroboost, but wanted to go down this route first. I also wondered what happens if in an engine failure, how a hydroboost would provide boost in that situation. If I don't have enough vacuum with this setup, I can always add a pump. I've always thought the brakes may take a bit of tinkering once it's running.

Looking good mate,

Pretty sure hyrdoboost has a accumulator setup that stores a bit of pressure in case of engine/pump failure. Much like a regular vacuum brake booster if your engine dies u get a few good pumps of the brakes before it goes back to "non-boosted" brakes.

Usually good for one solid pump or 2 at most if it loses oil pressure. Either way it just reduces it down to manual braking, you just have to step on it harder

It's been ages since I did an update here, so I'm going to resurrect this thread. I started this build before I had kids, so I now know why people complain about not having time as a parent.

Anyways, I ended up getting a ricks tank fuel tank with notched corners. It has a fuel bowl which houses 2 pumps in case you ever need 2. It also has corner pickup points for snowmobile fuel pickups which you can put into the tank to try and battle fuel starvation in the corners that many people complain about. I thought you could even put a couple of corner pickups in to run to a second pump that fills the bowl from the corners of the tank. If starvation is ever an issue, I will try it down the track.

On to the Fuel lines. I was recommended using -08 too and return lines for the setup. With the frame connectors in, I couldn't run the lines in the original spot, so chose an alternate route on the inside of the frame rail. I was also a little concerned about the fuel lines being lower than the frame rail. There was really nowhere else to run them without having to cross over the frame rail unless I ran hose inside the frame rails. The decision was made to make a couple of 'skid plates'. Basically it does 2 jobs, cradles the lines and protects them from jacking up the car or bottoming out. Ever had an ambulance up your ass at the lights with gutters all around? They look a bit kooky, but I'm too practical. They are secured by the spring cradle bolt and I nutsersted a bolt at the leading edge with a rounded cap not to catch in any corners, so they are removable. The lines are alloy and covered with heat guard. I also made a long alloy heat shield near the headers as it's pretty close.

Couple more pics of the heat shields. Again all removable. The fuel lines are secured to the frame rail under here. I just drew these up on the computer and had them laser cut and folded them up in the shed.

One thing we noticed when dropping the engine in, is that the Gearbox crossmember flexed 10mm, which was too much. It also had to come up about 10mm to be at the correct pinion angle and give more birth to the uni joint clearance for the torque arm crossmember.

We decided to just weld a 10mm steel plate across the mounting face of the crossmember and weld gussets to the side brackets which solved the problem.

Unfortunately I dont have many pics of the finished tunnel cover before I started sticking butane on it. Only this one. A mate did it on the side while he was building the chassis for the new batmobile (no sh!t), so the job was easy for him. Raised only about 10 - 15mm so the carpet will hopefully still fit.
